After watching and listening to the political events of last week, I have a strong belief that our government is being run by a bunch of 12-year-old wannabes. They remind me of the classic “Peanuts” characters. Here they are, in no particular order:
Lucy/Nancy Pelosi: She is bossy, fussy and crabby, with little interest in problems or solutions. Her primary goal is to pull the football away before Charlie Brown kicks it.
Linus/Mike Pence: Smart enough to lie low with a blanket. He can be a bit insecure. He often is forced to act as a part-time theologian and psychologist.
Pig Pen/Chuck Schumer: He makes everything dirty by walking into the room.
Violet/Elizabeth Warren: Violet was a bit snobby. Her appearances with the “Peanuts” gang slowly phased out with time, just like Warren’s campaign.
Peppermint Patty/Melania Trump: Has an unexplainable crush on Charlie Brown. She is the real leader of the “Peanuts” baseball team.
Schroeder/Bernie Sanders: It’s the hair.
Charlie Brown/Donald Trump: He is regarded as both a loser and a winner. Someone has to play the idiot who keeps trying to kick the football that Lucy/Nancy will pull away.
Snoopy/He’s a dog. However, he is the most thoughtful and mature of the group.
The Teacher/National Media: Wa wa wa wa wa wa wa.
